Knutsen, Norway Win Gold in France

Raider forward Jonas Knutsen and Team Norway took the gold medal at the 2013 IIHF Under-20 Division I Championships in Amiens, France.

Norway took their first game of the tournament 4-1 over Austria, with Knutsen setting up the eventual game winning goal.

In their second game, the Oslo product picked up another assist on Norway’s first goal in a 3-1 victory over the host nation, France.

In their third game, Knutsen scored the game winning goal, and added the insurance marker, in a 4-2 decision against Belarus.

Norway would then face Scandinavian rival Denmark in a match of undefeated teams. Down 2-1 in the third period, Knutsen came up with a power play marker to tie the game and send it to overtime, where Norway would strike first and move to a 4-0-0 record.

This morning, Norway defeated Slovenia by a final score of 5-1, with the Raiders left-winger adding another goal to solidify the gold medal and their promotion to the 2014 World Junior Hockey Championships next year in Sweden.

Knutsen finished second in team scoring with 4 goals and 3 assists for 6 points along with a plus-3 rating.
